Silent

 

It’s a natural response for us to defend ourselves because who wants to be taken advantage of? I don’t.

A few months ago, I almost confronted the person who’s causing so much pain to my mother even though I don’t like confrontation. I was already thinking what to say and rehearsing how to deliver it.

I couldn’t sleep.

I was sure that I was about to do the right thing, but I remembered a Bible verse I read few days before that day.

The Lord will fight for you, you have only to be silent.

Exodus 14:14 ESV

I know that the Lord was saying, “Hush, my daughter. Let me handle it.”

I obeyed, felt nothing but peace, and slept like a baby.
